Why I Love Teaching At Taylor:

Taylor is filled with students and faculty who genuinely care about the mission and purpose of Christian higher education, which is to integrate our Christian faith in our academic discipline. I find the classroom atmosphere at Taylor to be invigorating and motivating. There are many opportunities to impact lives for the glory of Jesus Christ. 


Advice to Incoming Students:

After teaching in higher education since 1989 my advice to freshmen is always the same: place Christ first in all you do, explore your options, work hard and apply yourself to the task at hand, and watch God move heaven and earth on your behalf.


Hobbies:

Reading, spending time with family, basketball, baseball, golf
